A Woman, her purse and her heart…

 

As a woman, you would think that after your purse is snatched by the goons; having to replace your phone is top priority but nope. I learned the hard way.

I woke up the following morning sore, feeling like a trainwreck, having overslept because my alarm didn’t go off, jumped into the shower, tried to brush my teeth and scrub at the same damn time. Well, I barely managed to do that. Searched for my toiletry bag so I could draw my eyebrows in (for the amount of hair I have on my cabeza, my eyelashes and eyebrows blow…)
Once in a while, I need tools to help me put my game face on; I remembered that it was in my favorite purse that was snatched…

My heart sunk at the realization of what I had lost. My heart broke at the loss of my assortment of essence oils, the different shades of lipgloss that were more of a collector’s items if anything, my ‘lucky’ spare earrings, wallet, my ‘fancy’ pair of shades, my customized purple iPod shuffle among so many other items that I keep remembering as the days go by. I guess a woman never knows the exact contents of her purse at any given time because there were times I could find something in that favorite purse of mine that I thought I had lost months back and my excitement would surpass that of a child’s opening Christmas presents. Only a woman would understand :'(

With a heavy heart, I pulled a T-shirt over my head and a pair of Jeans and decided to carry a backpack to work. Got to work without my eyebrows but I didn’t care. Of course my colleagues did raise THEIR eyebrows at the sight of me, or at the lack of mine. I will never know…

Even then, my phone hadn’t crossed my mind. However, my data dongle with about 4GB worth of data did, for about 3 seconds and I was back to my toiletry bag…
